ABOUT THE BOOK

Publisher’s Synopsis: As book three of the Greystone Secrets series opens, the Greystone kids have their mother back from the evil alternate world, and so does their friend Natalie. But no one believes the danger is past.
Then mysterious coins begin falling from unexpected places. They are inscribed with codes that look just like what the Greystones’ father was working on before he died. And with the right touch, those symbols transform into words: PLEASE LISTEN. And FIND US, SEE US, HELP US. . . .
The coins are messengers, telling the Greystones and their allies that their friends in the alternate world are under attack—and that the cruel, mind-controlling forces are now invading the better world, too.
After another spinning, sliding journey across worlds, the Greystone kids must solve mysteries that have haunted them since the beginning: what happened when the Gustanos were kidnapped, what created the alternate world, and how a group of mismatched kids can triumph once and for all against an evil force that seems to have total control.
Readers who enjoy mystery, suspense, action, brave siblings, travel between alternate worlds, or a combination of those elements will love this final chapter of the series. Each of the Gresytone children has their own strength, which reminds me a bit of the Baudelaires in A Series of Unfortunate Events. Rather than an evil Count Olaf, these youngsters are facing off against the rulers of an alternate world that want to take control of both worlds and suppress any free thought or independence.
The Greystones come across allies during their trials, although it can be hard to know whom to trust. With everyone in the other world conditioned to obey their leaders without question and people in their own world ignorant of the dangers, they can’t just go to the authorities and file a report. And things aren’t as simple as assuming that everyone from the other world is bad or everyone from the world they live in is good - life is never that clearly divided.
Growing up and learning to trust yourself and make wise choices about where else to place your trust is always tough. But these characters have each other and a worthwhile goal to work toward. Isn’t that as much as anyone can hope for?
Margaret Peterson Haddix grew up on a farm in Ohio. As a kid, she knew two girls who had the exact same first, middle, and last names and shared the same birthday—only one year apart—and she always thought that was bizarre.
As an adult, Haddix worked as a newspaper reporter and copy editor in Indiana before her first book, Running Out of Time, was published. She has since written more than forty books for kids and teens, including the Greystone Secrets series, the Shadow Children series, the Missing series, the Children of Exile series, and lots of stand-alones. Haddix and her husband, Doug, now live in Columbus, Ohio, where they raised their two kids.You can learn more about her at www.haddixbooks.com.
